A Dzivaresekwa woman appeared before magistrate Mr Tendai Mahwe last Friday to answer attempted murder charges after she allegedly scalded her husband with hot tea. The incident is said to have happened during a domestic dispute when the woman’s husband caught her in a compromising situation with another man.

The alleged victim (name not supplied) of 1419 Chigutsa Street, Dzivarasekwa 3, is admitted at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.

Appearing for the State, prosecutor Miss Sharon Mashavira alleges that sometime last week, Privilege Amos’ husband was alerted by his neighbours about his wife’s shenanigans.

The man, it is alleged, pretended to have gone out of town only to come back home.

He allegedly caught his wife with her suspected lover in their matrimonial bed.

Amos is said to have rushed to the kitchen where she allegedly took a pot of boiling tea and drenched her husband.

A police report was made leading to her arrest.

Amos was remanded in custody to June 12 for her routine remand and Mr Mahwe aised her to apply for bail at the High Court due to the gravity of the offence.

The lower court has no jurisdiction to entertain bail on third schedule offences.
